Casino robbers wanted

Las Vegas police have identified two suspects in the attempted robbery of World Series of Poker champion Greg "Fossilman" Raymer.

Robbery detectives were searching for Kevin R. Joy, 35, and Deem Cassim, 31, who they believe ambushed Raymer on Dec. 20 outside his Bellagio hotel room and tried to rob him of $150,000.

One of the men had a gun, but the 330-pound, 40-year-old Raymer fought off the duo.

The Stonington, Conn., resident won $5 million earlier this year at the World Series of Poker at Binion's Horseshoe. He since has quit his job as a patent lawyer to become a full-time poker player.

Joy is 6 feet 2 inches tall and 240 pounds with a bald head and green eyes. Cassim is 5 feet 8 inches tall and 150 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Police said they were seen in a late-model silver Nissan with Nevada plates that might include the digits 135. Anyone with information can call robbery detectives at 229-3591 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
